at martin luther king school and this board has covered up criminal activity from the staff of the school. he makes a joke about psychological testing and pearson to evaluate the students here in san francisco. pearson is under investigation for corruption in new york state and will be investigateed in california for corruption because you're spending more time on testing than taking care of the students particularly here at martin luther king. additionally this superintendent and the board is aware of the ongoing situation at martin luther king and the superintendent said there was no cover up and slander going on but the whistle blower said the principal laid on a student and injured as a result that was set up in a scheme to be fired by this management. they spent thousands of dollars of public money to fire him and the arbitrator could not go along with the lies and slanders against toby cane and rejected it and said he should be brought back to work. that is a victory for san francisco and the students at martin luther king. 17 staff 1021 and they of bullied out of the school.
